As part of the Southern Field Days 2024, students will be participating in the Food & Fibre Discovery Challenge brought to you by NZ Young Farmers and Beef + Lamb New Zealand. Participants will go around the different sites involved in the scavenger hunt, identifying different career pathways and opportunities, answering questions as they go and discovering new knowledge. Route information will be given to them prior to the day so that they can sort where they are starting from, with the end point the Beef + Lamb New Zealand.

This event contains risks, including being busy tracks/paths, tent pegs, lots of people, and many vehicles and large machinery. This event is managed by school staff who will manage risk and hazards according to the school’s safety management plan. This includes careful planning around what students are expected to do while there, giving the students site maps in advance, wearing appropriate footwear and staying with parents/caregivers. While risks can be maintained to acceptable levels they cannot be totally eliminated. Some risk is retained for its learning and experiential value. If you wish to come in to school to see our safety management systems or have any questions, feel free to contact Miss Kate Gilchrist 03 2116030 or firstname.lastname@example.org
It is important for safety reasons that students follow instructions given to them by all staff and follow all appropriate school rules. Behaviour by students that is deemed dangerous and puts themselves and/or others at undue risk will result in parents being contacted and asking you to take your child home.
